  • College football’s top four

    As much as I like controversial situations I don’t believe that I would want to be on the committee that decides the top four teams in the final college football poll.
    There is potential for several teams with legitimate claims to one of the spots to be left out while one of maybe less talent gets into the final four.
    It will be easy to eliminate some teams who before this past weekend had hopes to be in the final four.  
    Notre Dame may have been the highest rated team that laid an egg Saturday. The Fighting Irish are out of it.

  • In everything let us give thanks!

    Thanksgiving ... giving thanks ...
    In church last week Rhonda Strawzell led the children through an exercise with an acrostic. They had the word “T-H-A-N-K-S-G-I-V-I-N-G” printed on a piece of paper. As they read down the page, they hollered out something for which they were thankful that began with that letter.
